Brown Sugar Body Scrub Recipe and Travel Essentials

By Christy Amular - September 21, 2010

Remember the health adage, "Don't put anything on your skin that you can't eat?"  I love making my own body scrubs whenever I can by using natural ingredients easily found in the kitchen. Here's one of my favorite body recipes:

Brown Sugar Body Scrub

  • 1 cup organic brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup massage oil ( I use  lavender, sweet orange, and Himalayan cedarwood blend)
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Blend well together and store in a recycled jam jar or apothecary jar. Also try the Lemon Honey Scrub which you can whip up in a jiffy.

Also check out's special feature What Travels with You. Every week, Clara takes a peek into the travel bag of her favorite bloggers to  uncover their 4 or 5 most important essentials. My travel bag essentials are featured as of the moment Have a look!
